mNUTES. 

Aid. Severin moved that the minutes of the reg- 
ular meeting held April 5, 1886, and the ad- 
journed meeting hold April 8, 1886, be appro- 
ved withouLt being read. 

Aid. Cullerton raised the point of order, that 
the old Council could take no action tending 
toward a vote inasmuch as the members elect 
had already qualified. 

The Chair decided the point of order not well 
taken, but before putting the motion to approve 
the minutes, requested the Clerk to read the fol- 
lowing opinion of the Corporation Council, 

Office of the ) 

CoTTNSEIj to the CORPOEATfON, > 

City Hall, Chicago, April 12, 1886. ) 
To the Mayor and Aldermen of the City of Chi- 
cago in Council assembled: 
Gentlemen— By an order passed last Thurs- 
day, you called for my opinion upon a series of 



questions regarding the effect of the city election 
law upon the provisions of the c]ty charter. It 
is impossible for me to do full justice to the sub- 
ject in the limited time allowed, and as the ques- 
tions have not yet been decided by the courts of 
this State, this opinion is but my personal judg- 
ment in the matter, based upon what I know to 
have been the intention of the framers of the 
new law and upon the application of general 
principles to the particular points involved. 

Taking up your questions seriatim, I answer, 
as a matter of law, your first query in the nega- 
tive. The city election law does not undertake 
to make any change in the term of office of ald- 
ermen or any other officers. Practically, how- 
ever, it may operate in seating the aldermen- 
elect earlier than would have been the case if the 
law were not in force. Members of the Council 
are elected for a term of two years and until 
their successors are elected and qualified. After 
a city election, held under the city charter, the 
returns were required to be made to the City 
Clerk within two days; it " thereupon " became 
the duty of the Council to canvass and declare 
the result. The performance of this duty being 
at times delayed, it resulted in the aldermen- 
elect being sometimes deprived of their seats 
for an unreasonable length of time. Under the 
city election law. the canvass of the votes is di- 
rected to be made within seven days after the 
close of the election. In other words, the new 
law makes an immediate declaration of the re- 
sult of the election imperative, and hence 
shortens the term of those aldermen who were 
not promptly seated after the city elections of 
1884 and 1885. But for this the sitting aldermen 
have no redress, if their term be shortened, as 
their failure to serve for two full years is owing

[1886. 



to the neglect of the Council to promptly per- 
form its duty in declaring the result of the elec- 
tions in 1884 and 1885. 

You next inquire, '"When can the aldermen- 
elect take their seats?" When the board of can- 
vassers finishes its canvass and the result is de- 
clared and entered of record in the County 
C!ourt, and a certified copy of such record tiled 
with the County Clerk, it becomes the duty of 
that officer to issue, upon application, the certi- 
ficates of election to those who have been de- 
clared elected aldermen. Having received their 
certificates of election, it becomes the duty of 
the aldermen-elect to take the oath of office pre- 
scribed by Section 4, Article 6, of the City Char- 
ter, and they are entitled, thereupon, to take 
their seats as members of the City Council. 

Your third question is, "Whether the new law 
repeals the power of the ('ouncil to judgo of the 
qualifications of its own members?" To the 
question as asked, I answer that the power of the 
Council to judge of the "qualifications" of its 
members is not repealed by rhe new law. By 
Section 6, of Article 3, of the City Charter, the 
Council is made the "judge of the election 
and qualification of its own members," 
and there is no provision in the new law 
which provides for any new or different tri- 
bunal to pass upon the qualifications of alder- 
men to serve as such. You do not ask me as to 
the effect of the new law upon the power of the 
Council to judge of the "election" of its mem- 
bers, and I, therefore, refrain from the discus- 
sion of the interesting question as to whether 
there may now be an aldermanic contest of elec- 
tion before the City Council. 

The Council being still the judge of the quali- 
fications of its members, you ask whether 
this power may be exercised after the aldermen- 
elect has received his certificate and taken the 
oath of office. The answer to this question must 
plainly be in the affirmative. 

Your last query embraces the effect of the new 
law upon the various provisions of the charter 
and as to the extent of such effect. The question 
has a very wide scope, and I cannot pretend to 
give a complete answer within the limited time 
allowed me. Speaking in broad terms, the new 
law divests the Council of its power of providing 
for city elections and ascertaining and declaring 
the result of the same, and places that power in 
the hands of officers of the County Court. It 
further undertakes to prescribe such rules and 
regulations in regard to the ballot, to insure a 
fair and honest expression of the will of the 
electors, as have not heretofore been in force 
through the general electicm law of the State. 

Coming down to details, I believe I can best 
demonstrate how the new law has affected the 
charter provisions by contrasting the methods 
under the latter with those now in force. 

Under the Charter.it was the duty of the Coun- 
cil to locate the polling places and select the 
judges of election. This duty now devolves up- 
on the County Court and its officers. The man- 
ner of conducting and voting at the election was 
formerly the same, substantially, as in the case 
of the election of county officers under the gen- 
eral election law of the State. It is now regula- 
ted in detail by the city election law. 

The ballots were counted and the returns were 
made out, and, with the ballots, were returned 
to the City Clerk. The ballots are now destroyed 
and the returns are made to the Election Com- 
missioners, the County Clerk and the City Com- 
ptroller. Formerly it was the duty of the Coun- 
cil to act as a canvassing board and to declare 
the result of the election. This duty now de- 
volves upon a special board of canvassers, con- 
sisting of the County Judge, the City Attorney, 
and the Election Commissioners. In case ot a 
tie, the result is to be determined now by lot be- 
fore the board of canvassers instead of before 
the Council, as formerly. It is made the duty of 
the City Clerk to notify aldermen of their elec- 



tion. This he formerly did, acting as the clerk 
of the body which declared the result of the 
election. It is rather a curious question whether 
this duty still devolves upon that officer, now 
that the result is declared by another tribunal, 
and the certificates of election are issued by the 
County Clerk. Certainly, it W(>uld seem a mat- 
ter of supererogation for him to notify those 
who have applied for and obtained from the 
County Clerk their certificates of election. But 
if it is sought to declare the office vacant, for a 
failure to qualify under Article 4 of the charter, 
I am inclined to think it would still' be necessary 
to show that the officer-elect had received notice 
of his election from the City Clerk. The re- 
quirement that the Council shall cause notice of 
elections to be given remains unrepealed. 

To sum up, the power of the Council over what 
may be called the preliminaries ot an aldermanic 
election, except the giving of notice for the 
same, is now vested in other hands. After such 
election, the Council formerly had the power to 
pass upon the same— first, as a canvassing board, 
and, second, in its judicial capacity. This dis- 
tinction I pointed out at length in my opinion to 
you last spring, concerning the returns from the 
Third precinct of the Third ward. The first of 
these powers is taken away by the new law; how 
far the second is divested— if at all— I do not 
now feel called upon to explain at length, in the 
absence of a specific request upon that point. 
The effect of the city election law upon your po- 
litical powers may be fairly illustrated by say- 
ing that it has practically placed your body in 
the position, upon this subject, of the House of 
Representatives or State Senate at Springfield. 
An Alderman, like a State Senator, now receives 
from the proper official a certificate of election, 
which is prima facie evidence of his election. 
The qualifications of eaeh may then be inquired 
into by the body of which he is a part, but each 
is entitled to act until ousted by the legislative 
body af t^r due inquiry and investigation, 
Kespectfully submitted, 
F. S. Winston, 

Corporation Counsel. 



The Chair then put the motion to approve the 
minutes, and the motion prevailed. 



Aid. Dixon moved that the outgoing aldermen 
vacate their seats and conduct the newly elected 
aldermen to their seats, 

So ordered.

advertised by the Comptroller for proposals to 



lease for a long term of years, and a number of

Whereas, The Fire Department occupies- a 
portion of said property in a building. Engine 
Company No. 1. costing the city about S1'>.000; 
and an item in the last appropriation bill, pro- 
poses an addition to the building for a first 
size steam fire engine arid expenses for runnijag 
the same; and 

Whereas, The said property is the last peico 
of ground owned by the city vfest of Clark 
street to the river, and extending from South 
Vt^ater street to Harrison street, (the city having

ween Madison and Washington streets, and also

any other suitable site in said district in which 
to locate our fire company, where the capital 
stock invested in improvements and merchan- 
dise amounts to over S2()0>000,000; therefore be it 

Resolved, That this (Council deem it inadvis-

BEPOBTS OF CITY OFFICERS. 

The Clerk presented the report of His Honor 
the Mayor of pers<m8 pardoned from the House 
of (Correction, for t lie week ending May 1,1886, 
which was 

Placed on file. 



His Honor the Mayor submitted the following 

message: 

Mayob's Office, ? 
Chicago, May 3, 1886. J 
To the City Cmmcil of the City of Chicago : 

Gentlemen— On the fifth day of April last 1 
returned to you, without approval, an ordinance 
in relation to a contract for 1886 with The Peo- 
ple's Gas Light & Coke Company. 

In my message I stated that the time-table 
could be so modified as to save the tax-payers 
about ninety thousand ($90,000.CX)) dollars, and 
yet give a not unsatisfactory light. 

Since the Council passed the ordinance over 
my objections, I have been in frequent negotia- 
tions with the ofiicers of The People's Gas Com- 
pany and endeavoring to negotiate a change of 
the table. I am pleased to be able to submit to 
you an ordinance, this evening prepared by the 
company, which the officers assure me will save 
the city about forly-two thousand ($42,000) dol- 
lars a year, and at the same time give an entirely 
satisfactory light. It will simply save the con- 
sumption of gas, when the burning of it would 
be wholly unnecessary and therefore a simple 
waste. 

I have not had time to verify the assertions of 
the company, but am confident they are correct 
as to the giving of satisfaction and will hold it 
as to the amount to be saved. 

If the Council had sustained my veto a month 
ago. a modification would then have been made 
wliich would liave given a whole month's saving. 
I urge that you act on this ordinance to-night, so 
as not longer to put the saving oft. This ordin- 



May 3J 



[1886. 



ance was prepared wholly by the company, and 
is therefore entirely satisfactory to it. There 
can therefore be no good reason whatever for de- 
ferring action upon it. 

Caeter H. Habbison, 
Mayor. 

Aid. Campbell moved that the ordinance sub- 
mitted by the Mayor, and referred to in his mes- 
sage, be passed. 

The motion prevailed by yeas and nays as fol- 
lows: 

Yeas— Dixon, Mueller, Drew, Gile, Wetherell, 
Clarke, Hillock, Doerner, Yore, Mahony, Whee- 
ler, Revere, Simons, Campbell, Lyke, Landon, 
Schack, Ryan, Eisfeldt. Ernst, Colvin, Linn, 
Manierre, Tiedemann— 24. 

iVa?/s— None. 

The following is the ordinance as passed: 
Be it ordained hy the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Section 1. That the tir^e-table- for! lightinir 
and extinguishing the street, lainpS in the City 6f 
Chicago, adopted by the City Gouncil on the 8th 
day of April, 1886, be^and the same is hereby" 
modified and changed, so that it shall be as fol- 
lows:

His Honor submitted the following communi- 
cation pertaining to an order passed at your last 
regular meeting directing the Commissioner of 
Public Works to prepare an ordinance for the 
construction of a wall on Stewart avenue, etc: 
Mayob's Office, ) 
Chicago, April, 30, 1886. S 
To the City Gouncil: 

Gentlemen— At your last meeting you passed 
the following order: 

Ordered, That the Department of Public 
Works prepare a proper ordinance in accord- 
ance with the prayer of the petitioners, for the 
construction of a wall on Stewart avenue, from, 
the south line of Judd street to the north line of 
Sixteenth street, the expense of the same to be 
paid by the railroad comx)any. 

Upon consultation with the Law Department, 
I find that no legal or proper ordinance can be 
drawn which will compel the company to pay for 
a wall on Srewart avenue. 

Ne.gotiations, however, are now pending bet- 
ween the company, the city and the property 
owners, looking towards the donation by the 
railroad company of sufficient property on the 
side of Stewart avenue, to form a new street, 
with a wall intervening betv/een the roadway 
and the tracks. 

When these negotiations have so far progressed 
as to allow of some definite plan to be laid be- 
fore you, I will take pleasure in submitting the 
whole matter to you for your consideration and 
approval. 

Yours respectfully, 

Cabtee H, Hakkison, 

Maijor.

and 

Whereas, The Fire Department occupies a 
portion of said property in a bailding — Engine 
Company No. 1— costing the city apout $15,000,

RESOLUTION. 

Whereas. The City of Chicago for several 
years has been in great need of a compendium of 
Municipal Reports and Council Proceedings for 
convenient access and reference, containing, be- 
sides a general index, important ordinances, 
orders, resolutions, votes, messages, vetoes and 
other municipal records similar to volumes pub- 
lished in New York and other metropolitan 
cities; and 

Whereas, Such a record has been prepared at 
a great expenditure of time and money, and 
comprises a complete municipal history, from 
the ineorporation of the original town of Chi- 
cago to the foundation of the city government in 
1837, and from that date lists of the various 
mayors and city officials, messages, ordinances, 
resolutions, official election statistics, changes 
of limits and redistricting the city by wards, 
congressional and election districts and precincts 
within the city, lists of and official votes for all 
the various officials ever elected in these dis- 
tricts, valuable statistical tables of city depart- 
ments, history of the progress of the building 
of the City Hall, county relations, school census 
and nationality census of the city by wards and 
election precints, and a vast amount of other of- 
ficial and historical matter not published in any 
printed record, relating to the government and 
growth of the city, from the date of its founda- 
tion to its present greatness; therefore 

Resolved, That the sum of $1,000.00 (one thou- 
sand dollars) be and is hereby appropriated from 
the contingent fund, or other monies in the 
treasury not otherwise appropriated, and the 
same is hereby ordered to be paid to Mr. F. O. 
Bennett, the author, as compensation for pub- 
lishing in a handsomely bound volume of not less 
than five hundred printed pages, the matter al- 
ready compiled and awaiting publication; the 
said sum of $1,000 to be paid upon delivery to 
the Comptroller, properly bound, of thirty-six 
volumes of said work for the use of each of the 
Aldermen, one volume each for the Mayor and 
heads of departments, and one hundred extra 
copies for transmission by the Mayor to foreign 
and other municipalities to which the City of 
Chicago is under obligations for similar court- 
esies. 

ALSO, 

The same Committee, to whom was referred the 
petition of James C. Burke, for damages to his 
property, arising from the rebuilding of the Og- 
den dam, submitted a report recommending that 
the said petition be placed on file. 

Aid. Cullerton moved to concur in the report.

To the Mayor and Aldermen of the City of Chi- 
cago in Council assembled : 

Your Committee on Finance, to whom was re- 
ferred an order directing the Comptroller to re- 
fund to Thos. Devine the sum of |21.92 in money, 
a rebate allowed on saloon license No. 1859, of 
the third period of 1885, having had the same 
under advisement, beg leave to report, that they 
recommend that said order be placed on file, as 
it would not be competent for the Council to 
pass such an order, as the money paid into the 
city treasury for licenses, loses its distinctive 
character when paid in, and becomes an integral 
portion of the public municipal fund, and can be 
used only as other city moneys, and paid out 
only m accordance with an appropriation duly 
made by the City Council, and for some corpor- 
ate purpose.

The following is the report: 
To the Mayor and Aldermen of the City of Chi-, 

cago in Council assembled : 

Your Committee on Finance, to whom was re- 
ferred a preamble and ordinance authorizing the 
Superintendent of Police to employ one hundred 
additional policemen— second class— having had 
the same under advisement, beg leave to report, 
that under the law the city has no power to 
make an additional appropriation without a vote 
of the people; but recognizing the fact that the 
police force is now short of its quota of men by 
reason of the recent riot, and recognizing the fact 
that it is necessary to maintain a full quota of pol- 
ice men, respectfully recommend the passage of 
the ordinance referred to the committee, with an 
amendment fixing the increase of the force at 
fifty men instead of one hundred men, and pro- 
viding that the salary of such additional police- 
men shall be paid out of the contingent fund un- 
til January 1, 1887. 

The following is the ordinance as amended, the 
passage of which your committee would recom- 
mend: 

O. D. Wetherell, 

Chairman. 

Be it ordained by the City Council of the City 
of Chicago : 

Section 1. That from and after the passage 
of this ordinance, the Superintendent of Police 
shall add fifty men to the police force of the City 
of Chicago, to be known as second-class patrol- 
men, at a salary of seventy-five dollars each per 
month, to be paid out of the contingent fund 
until January 1. 1887, and no further, unless an 
appropriation is made therefor in the annual ap- 
propriation bill of 1887.

[1886. 



Sec. 2. This ordinance shall be in force 
from and after its passage. 

PREAMBLE AND ORDINANCE. 

Whereas, The Superintendent of Police 
in his annual estimate, asked an increase of the 
police force which it was not demmed advisable 
to appropriate for at that time, but the recent 
disturbances, riot and bloodshed in our city has 
clearly shown the absolute necessity of now in- 
creasing the police force, and 

Whereas, The police force has recently 
demonstrated its unselfish heroism in its defense 
of life and property against a public enemy, who 
resorted to a means of attack, recognized as 
barbarous by all civilized nations, but before 
whose deadly missiles, our police force stood as 
firmly as upon parade, closing their depleted 
ranks over their dead and dying comrades, dis- 
persing the cowardly mob with courage, patience 
and humanity; therefore 

Be it ordained by the City Council of the City of 
Chicago : 

Section 1. That from and after the passage 
of this ordinance, the Superintendent of Police 
shall. add one hundred(lOO) men to the police 
force of the City of Chicago, to be known as 
second class, at a salary of seventy-five dollars 
each per month, to be paid out of any moneys not 
otherwise appropriated. 

Sec, 2. This ordinance shall be in force from 
and after its passage.

Department oe Law, ? 
Chicago, May 27, 1888. S 
O. D. Wetherell, Esq., Chairman of Finance 
Committee : 

Dear Sir: In reply to your inquiry as to the 
power of the City Council to increase the police 
force of the City of Chicago, in accordance with 
the resolution introduced by Aid. Dixon, May 10, 
1886, 1 would say that the charter makes no pro- 
vision by Section 2, of Article 7, of the City 
Charter for such appropriation. The Council is 
required, prior to April 1, to pass the annual 
appropriation bill in which must be included 
the amounts and items "necessary to defray all 
necessary expenses and liabilities of sueh cor- 
poration." It further provides that the only ex- 
ceptions to this rule are as follows: 

"Nothing herein contained shall prevent the 
City Council or Board of Trustees from ordering 
by a two-thirds vote, any improvement, the ne- 
cessity of which is caused by any casualty or 
accident happening after such annual approp- 
riation is made. 

The terms casualty or accident have been con- 
strued to cover cases necessitated by accidents 
or casualties happening after the passage of the 
annual appropriation bill, but it can not be ex- 
tended to cover this ordinance. 

In order to make this increase of the police 
force the Council must do so by other means, it 
is a matter of policy, or financial capacity, more 
than questions of law. 

If the city now has funds sufficient in its 
treasury, which have not been otherwise appro- 
priated, the ordinance above referred to, if pass- 
ed, will be valid, and the increase of the police 
force, whieh— the Chief of Police has requested 
as necessary for the protection of the eity, can be 
made. 

Respectfully yours. 

Hemp. Washburne, 
City Attorney.

SPECIAL OEDER. 

The Chair directed that the special order, the 
ordinance repealing ordinance for the vacation 
of Haines street, published May 17. 1886, be now 
taken up. 

Opinion of the Corporation Council, on repeal 
of ordinance, for the vacation of Haines street: 

Office of the ^ 
Counsel to the Corporation, [ 
Chicago. May 24, 1886. ) 

'To the Honorable the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen: — In compliance with your request 
1 herewith submit my opinion as to the legality of 
the ordinance of March 1, 1886, vacating Haines 
street and the alley in block 86, Elston Addition, 
and the legal aspects of a repeal of said ordinance. 

The City Council has authority to vacate streets 
and alleys, or parts thereof, by ordinance, pro- 
vided it IS passed by a vote of three-fourths of all 
the aldermen elect, taken by ayes and noes and 
entered of record. In this instance, aJl require- 
ments of law having been complied with, the le- 
gality of above ordinance cannot be questioned. 

The consent of adjoining property owners is 
not requisite to legalize the vacation of a street. 
The legal power of the Council in the premises 
is indisputable, nevertheless the exercise 
of that power should ordinarily be restricted to 
cases where all the property owners who might 
be damaged by the vacation, unite in petition- 
ing for the ordinance. 

In justice to all interested parties, and as a 
matter of sound policy, the foregoing rule should 
have no f xception, unless imperatively demand- 
ed by the general welfare of the community. 
Although the adjoining property owners cannot 
prevent the vacation of a street, they yet have 
legal redress in case they have been damaged by 
such vacation. The law expressly provides, that 
the damages, if any, for such closing of street and 
alleys, "shall be ascertained and paid as pro- 
vided by law," 

In this instance the wise precaution of pre- 
viously obtaining the written consent of all 
interested parties to such vacation, was over- 
looked or disregarded. 

There is at least one property owner whose ac- 
cess to Haines street is completely cat of by said 
ordinance. If his property has been damaged, 
he has a clear cause of action against the city. 
He did not consent to the closing of the street, 
his interest were not consulted, an opportunity 
to protest against the passage of above ordin- 
ance was not given him, and he claims that he 
was kept in ignoranee of the matter until after 
its passage. Streets and alley are usually vacated 
to advance private, rather than public interests, 
but the latter should not be made to sulfer for 
the benefit of the former, 

Whoever sought the passage of the above or- 
dinance, should have been made to indemnify 



May 24,] 



108 



[1886. 



and keep harmless the city against any and all 
damages that may accrue by reason of its 
passage. 

The ordinance in question contains two 
features, the vacation of a street and the vaca- 
tion of an alley. As to the latter, it seems that 
the property on both sides of the alley is con- 
trolled by the party asking for the ordinance, 
and that upon the faith of the ordinance, the 
alley has been taken possession of and built 
upon. In view of these facts, there can be no 
risk in allov^mg the vacation as to the alley to 
remain undisturbed. On the contrary there 
might be a liability upon the city to a consider- 
able amount, if the vacation of the alley be re- 
pealed, in view of the improvements which have 
been made since the passage of the ordinance. 
There can be no question as to the authority of 
the Council to repeal an ordinance. The power to 
make includes the power to repeal, but vested 
rights must not be disturbed- 

If the section of the ordinance that refers to 
said alley be repealed by the Council, then must 
the improvements that have since been made 
upon the alley by the present owner of the land, 
be paid by the city. The owner having m the 
meantime acquired rights, will be protected by 
the strong arm of the law. The right to private 
property is a sacred right. The owner of the im- 
provements must be indemnified in case of their 
removal by reopening said alley to the public. 
Let, then, the ordinance, so far as the same re- 
lates to the alley, remain in force. 

As to Haines street, the case is different. No 
material improvements have been made there, 
on the faith of the ordinance. The situation of 
affairs is, therefore, less complicated. I recom- 
mend the repeal of that section of the ordinance 
relating to Haines street. This should be done 
at once before further complications arise. No 
indemnity having been provided for the property 
holder, who claims to be damaged by the ordin- 
ance, the Council should act immediately, as a 
matter of self-protection. I, therefore, enclose 
herewith the draft of an ordinance repealing 
Section 1 of the ordinance of March 1, 1886, 

I do not maintain that the mischief done by 
the inconsiderate and hasty action of a former 
Council will be entirely eradicated by pursuing 
the course recommended by me, but the situa- 
tion of affairs will be greatly improved by the 
passage of the ordinance herewith. 

Respectfully submittad, 
Francis A. Hoffman. Jr., 

Corporation Counsel, 

Aid. Colvin moved that the ordinance, the 
special order, be placed on file, and that the or-

BEPOBTS OF CITY OFFICEBS. 

The Clerk presented the report of His Honor 
the Mayor of persons pardoned from the House 
of Correction, for the week ending May 29, 1886, 
which was 

Placed on file. 



His Honor the Mayor submitted the following 
veto message. 

Mayob's Office, ) 
Chicago, May 31, 1886. > 

I return to you without approval, an ordinance 
passed May 27, for the employment of fifty ad- 
ditional policemen. This ordinance provides for 
the payment of these policemen for the re- 
mainder of this year, out of the contingent fund. 
This is wholly illegal. The language of the ap- 
propriation for "contingent fund" this year is 
peculiar. It is as follows: "The contingent ex- 
penses for corporate purposes, including the 
settlement of valid claims against the city and 
the incidental expenses of the Mayor's office, 
the Comptroller's office, the City Clerk's offiee 
and the City Collector's office, not otherwise 
herein expressly provided for," etc., etc. 

There are always arising in all governmental 
management, contingencies which cannot be 
foreseen when annual appropriations are made. 
This necessitates the provision for a contingent 
fund. Otherwise unforeseen demands, and the 
inability to meet them, would cause very great 
embarrassment. In the appropriation for a 
contingent fund this year, the character of un- 
foreseen demands is particularly named. It is 
a settled rule of construction of laws and 
ordinances, that "the including certain things 
excludes all others.'' This certainly excludes 
all things not named in the appropriation. But, 
to make such exclusion more imperative, the 
language naming the contingencies speaks of 
them as "not otherwise herein provided for." 
The Police Department and the pay for its men

no 



[1888. 



is in the appropriation ordinance expressly pro- 
vided for, and is, therefore, expressly excluded 
from the operation of the contingent fund ap- 
propriation. But, gentlemen, even if this ordin- 
ance be not illegal, yet there has arisen no con- 
tingency to justify the increase of the police 
force by so unusual a procedure. The late riots 
and the bold suppression thereof by the police, 
instead of showing anecesssity for such increase, 
should rather prove the present satisfactory 
efficiency of the force. In former mesciages I 
have assured the Council that our police patrol 
system very nearly doubles the effectiveness of 
the department. Its value, however, has been 
apparent only to those who looked from within. 
The whole public has now seen how rapidly con- 
centration at given point is made possible, and 
how in times of riots the present force can do 
the work of perhaps double the number of men 
without some such system as the police patrol. 

Chicago has shown the world her power to 
quell domestic disturbances; in fact any distur- 
bance against which police power ought to be 
arrayed. We can subdue, and almost without 
bloodshed, any disturbance less than an insurrec- 
tion. Police power should not be powerful 
enough for such purpose. The people should 
not be taxed to support such a force. To quell 
an insurrection the people themselves should be 
depended on. For any disturbance likley to 
arise in Chicago, the present force is quite suf- 
ficient. If the emergency should arise to require 
it, the Mayor is clothed with sufficient power to 
call upon the whole people. 

It has been the proud boast of Chicago that she 
could lift herself from ashes into a metropolis of 
palaces. That she could emerge from a slough 
of financial depression into a city of unequalled 
credit. The last few weeks enables her to boast 
that she can put down lawlessness and bloody 
anarchy without an appeal to the aid of the 
soldier. I see that it is claimed as an emergency 
that the death and maimed condition of so many 
policemen demands an addition to the force. 
That is not so. The places of the dead and per- 
manently crippled can be filled without any 
further appropriation. We need other things 
more than new men in the Police Department. 
We need double-track steam-moved bridges to 
enable our Police and Fire Departments to move 
rapidly and with certainty from one part of the 
city to another more than an increased roster of 
patrolmen. Two or three of such bridges will 
be worth more for police purposes than a hun- 
dred new men. 

Carter H. Harrison, 
Mayor. 

Aid. Manierre moved to reconsider the vote by 
which the ordinance referred to in the veto mes- 
sage was passed. 

The motion prevailed. 

Aid. Drew moved that the ordinance be passed, 
the veto of His Honor the Mayor to the contrary 
nothwithstanding 

Aid. Hildreth moved that the consideration of 
the vetoed ordinance be temporarily postponed. 

The motion prevailed by yeas and nays as fol- 
lows:

ALSO, 

The following message: 

Mayor's Office, ) 
Chicago, May 27, 1886. ] 
To the City Council of the City of Chicago : 
Gentlemen:— Believing that property owned 



by the city should be improved to correspond as 
nearly as possible to the improvements erected 
by private individuals, I have favored the leas- 
ing of the southwest corner of Adams and Fifth 
avenue, so that erections may be put thereon, 
justified by the magnificent surrounding. 

ISome meetings since you rejected a bid made 
by S. W. Allerton for a lease, and ordered a new 
engine house to be erected on the lot; not only 
would this be injurious to the appearance of the 
locality, but the fire marshals think that the two 
engine houses would be in too close proximity to 
each other. In view of these facts, I have 
brought about negotiations with Mr. Allerton, 
to enable the leasing of the above named lot to 
be carried out, and the acquirement by the city 
of two other lots, together with engine houses 
thereon, located where the Fire Marshal desires 
the same, and. also where they are most needed, 
in the heai't of the city. 

I have just received from Mr. Allerton, a pro- 
position hereto appended, to purchase and deed 
to the city two lots, one of 40x80 feet on the cor- 
ner of Franklin and Court place, due west of the 
City Hall, another 45x100 feet on Fifth avenue, 
between Jackson and VanBuren streets, and to 
build on the said lots, two engine houses, to cost 
not to exceed $30,000. The consideration for the 
same, to be a receipt for the rent for twenty years, 
in accordance with his proposition of March 26, 
for lot on corner of Adams and Franklin streets. 
I have not the time to make a close calculation, 
to enable me to strike a balance, to find the real 
value of this financial proposition, but will give 
you a rough statement, to enable you to enter 
upon an examination of the proposed trade: 

l8T. The two lots are located as near as could 
be hoped for by the Fire Marshal, in the proper 
localities. 

2nd. New houses to be built would have all 
the modern appliances desired by the depart- 
ments. 

if we build on the present lot, there would be 
left, a very narrow lot on Adams and Franklin 
streets for rental, for which we could not hope 
to get a very large rent. I Iparn that the two 
lots offered the city by Mr. Allerton, together 
with the houses to be built thereon, will cost Mr. 
Allerton from $100,000 to $110,000 dollars; then 
the city will have absolutely six per cent, inter- 
est upon the above amount for twenty-years, 
will be from $120,000 to $130,000 dollars. 

Mr. Allerton proposes to erect on the city lot, 
a building to cost one hundred and fifty thous- 
and ($150,000) dollars. The taxation upon this, 
will in twenty years, amount to between $ O.OOO 
and $40,000 dollars. This side of the balance 
will be reduced by whatever taxation the two 
lots to be deeded to the city, (in the same period >, 
would bring. If the city had the power to go in 
the market, buy lots and build houses, it might 
make a more advantageous bargain than this 
would be, but not having the power to do these 
things, and knowing that if we build another en- 
gine house on Franklin and Adams streets, that 
there will remain so little of the lot to rent. It 
seems to me that this proposition of Mr. Aller- 
ton would be a most excellent one for the city, 
and is certainly one which you should not reject, 
except upon thorough investigation. I, there- 
fore, recommend that you give it your immedi- 
ate attention, as the proposition of Mr. Allerton 
can, as you will see by reading it, remain open 
but a short time. 

Carter H. Harrison, 

/ Mayor. 

Aid. Cullerton moved that the proposition re- 
ferred to in the message, be referred to the Com- 
mittee on Wharves and Public Grounds. 

Aid. Camppell moved that it be referred to the 
Committee on Finance. 

The motion prevailed.

ORDINANCES.

panied by the draft of an ordinance, permitting 
the operation of cars by the cable system.

The motion prevailed. 

The following is the petition: 

Office of ) 
North Chicago City Railway Co.. > 
Chicago, May 31, 1886. ) 

To His Honor the Mayor and City Council of the 
City of Chicago: 

The North Chicago City Railway Company 
respectfully petition your honorable body to pass 
an ordinance similar to that passed January 17, 
1881, permitting the operation of cars by cable 
system to add that description of motor to our 
line. 

As it is a subject that has already had the 
thorough examination of a former body of 
Councils, many of you having been members 
thereof, and it being a system now familiar to 
all of you, I would most respeccfully ask that 
as early consideration be given the ordinance as 
is practicable with public interests. As this 
company has concluded to lay a cable, if consist- 
ent with the views of your honorable body, it is 
desirable it should be in running order by winter. ~^ 
This I am assured can be accomplished if the 
contracts for material and machinery are made 
at an early date and the work energetically and 
vigorously pushed forward. The advantages to 
accrue to the property of the north side of the 
city, besides the convenience of better transit 
for the residents of that section, needs no special 
mention by me— they are many and varied. 

It is the desire of this company to give to our 
citizens that service which the continual growth 
of the city requires, and with an improved motor 
enable us to accoinmodate more people and with 
greater dispatch. It is our wish to relieve the 
streets in a great measure of the horses and 
eventually to take from the bridges a large pro- 
portion of our cars. Asking of your honorable 
body an early and favorable consideration of the 
ordinance presented, I am very respectfully your 
obedient servant, 

Charles T. Yerkes, 

President North Chicago City Railway Com- 
pany. 

The following is the ordinance: 

An ordinance authorizing the North Chicago 
City Railway (-ompany to operate its cars by , 
other than animal power.

[1886. 



Be it ordained by the City Council of the City of 
Chicago : 

Section 1. That the North Chicago City Rail- 
way Company, or its lessee, or assignee, may 
hereafter operate its various lines of railways, 
or any of them, or any part thereof, by station- 
ary engine or engines, not located on the public 
streets or public places on the street, and pro- 
pelled by other than animal power. 

Seo. 2. That the said North Chicago City 
Railway Company may, for said purposes, make 
all needful and convenient curves, trenches, ex- 
cavations and sewer connections, and may place 
all needful and convenient cables and machinery 
on any streets upon which its railways are now 
construtced. Such cables and machinery shall 
be underground and constructed in a substantial 
and workmanlike manner, so as not to interfere 
With public travel. 

Provided, That if in the constructing of said 
trenches and excavations, any damage or injury 
shall result to any of the sewers, water pipes or 
private drains, then said company shall pay and 
be held liable therefor; and if, at any time, by

PETITION. 

To His Honor the Mayor and City Council of the 
City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen— The North Chicago Street Rail- 
road Company respectfully petition your honor- 
able body to pass an ordinance, giving this com- 
pany the right to lay track or tracks on Illinois 
street, between Wells street and Clark street and 
on LaSalle street and avenue, between Illinois 
street and Jackson street through the LaSalle 
street tunnel, and to operate the same by the 
cable system. If your honorable body grants 
this petition, which is accompanied by a petition 
of a majority in frontage of the property owners 
on the above-named streets, the city will clearly 
be the gainer thereby. 

The ordinance will rid the bridges which are 
crossed by the cars of the north side company of 
a large proportion of them and at the same time 
utilize the comparatively useless tunnel. It will 
also relieve the crowded condition of the streets 
in the vicinity of these bridges, more particularly 
Clark street. It will also give a freer passage 
for vehicles on South Water street and Lake 
street. I do not anticipate that travel through 
the tunnel would be impeded to those who chose 
to use that thoroughfare, as the cars would be 
run through it at a slow rate of speed. The 
changes will entail on this company a large ex- 
pense and would not be practicable except for 
the permission to operate the road by a cable or 
some such system. I believe, however, the com- 
pany will be able to give better and more satis- 
factory service by the change, but at a greater 
cost than to use the bridges. The city will reap 
the benefits of the change without any expendi- 
tures whatever. If your honorable body passes 
this ordinance, the residents of the North Side 
will then have that communication with the 
business portion of the city that they have never 
enjoyed, and a person having an appointment or 
a train to catch can make a near calculation as 
to the length of time necessary for him to arrive 
at his point of destination. Hoping you will 
view the matter favorably, I am, very respect- 
fully. 

Your obedient servant, 

Chas. T. Yerkes, 

President. 

The follov/ing is the ordinance: 
An ordinance to authorize the North Chicago 

Street Railroad Company to construct a street 

railroad on Illinois and LaSalle streets. 
Be it ordained by the City Council of the City of

company shall refuse or fail so to do, 1 lie same 
may be done by the city and the company shall 
be liable to the city for the cost thereof. Noth- 
ing in this ordinance contained shall be con- 
strued as imposing any obligation or duty upon 
the City of Chicago concerning the repair or 
maintenance of said LaSalle street tunnel. 

Sec. 5. The City Council shall have power at 
all times to make such regulations as to the rate 
of speed, and time or times of running said cars

Mayor's Office. ? 
(Jhicago, June 14, 1886. ) 
To the City Council of the City of Chicago : 

GENTt,EMEN : 

On Monday last you passed au ordinance au- 
thorizing "The North Chicago City Railway Com- 
pany" to operate its cars by other than arsimal 
power. A great deal of bitterness has been shown 
by the cily press in discussing this ordinance. I 
have consequently examined it very carefully, 
and have listened most patiently to all who have 
come to speak of it. The vast majority of the 
people of the North Division seem to favor it. It 
is framed as a counterpart in provisions with the 
ordinance which gave a like authority to the City 
Railway Company in the South Division. That 
ordinance was submitted to me before it was 
offered in Council, and was made to conform to 
the views of the law department and of myself. 
It has proved to be a great benefit to that quarter 
of tlie city and has caused projierty along the 
streets in which the cable system has bi-en oper- 
ated to advance greatly in value. The same re- 
sults, I think, will folhnv its introduction in 
other p;irt.s of the city. It will add to the value 
of North Side property on all streets on whicli it 
is ]jr(jposed to be run, exce])t, possibly, Nortli 
State street, Tliis is mostly a residence str(;et, 
and that part of it eovf-red i)y v'ai-ii'acks is willi- 
in a mile of the heaituT tiie city, wlicre rapid

transit is not specially desirable; at least is not 
specially needed The North Division should 
have at least two bridge streets unincumbered by 
cable tracks. Believing this, I have caused to be 
prepared an ordinance exempting this street and 
so much of Division street as lies between Clark 
and State streets from the operation of this ordi- 
nance, unless upon the petition of the owners of 
the majority of the frontage on the same. I have 
the written agreement of the company that if you 
will pass the same it will be promptly accepted 
by the company. I have received some protests 
from property owners on Clybourn avenue, but 
they came in to me too late for me to weigh them, 
and I am thoroughly convinced that the people 
along that street will petition for the cable sys- 
tem before the company will see fit to go upon 
said street. I recommend that you pass the sup- 
plemental ordinance which I present herewith, 
regardin g State street. Much has been said about 
forcing this company by this ordinance to remove 
snow from its tracks. I do not think I would be 
justified in interposing a veto for this purpose. 
This company, with others, received a twenty 
years' extension for its franchise only three years 
ago. The people now desire a change of motive 
power. I hardly think it would be proper to force 
this company to bear this burden while other 
companies are free from it, simply because this 
company has the enterprise to incur the vast ex- 
pense this ordinance will entail. A snow ordi- 
nance should be passed which will operate alike 
on all roads. To this end I have prepared an or- 
dinance, which I herewith submit and urge you 
to pass at once. It has been carefully examined 
by the law department and been approved by it. 
It will be no hardship upon the roads, and will 
be a thing long since demanded. It permits the 
railroads to throw sno\^ when necessary from the 
tracks upon the remainder of the roadway, but 
then makes it the companies' duty to remove the 
same within a reasonable time. It should pass. 

Carter H. Harrison, 

Mayor. 

Aid. Colvin moved to pass the supplemental 
ordinance regarding State street, referred to in 
the message. 

The motion prevailed by yeas and nays as fol- 
lows: 

A'eas— Whelan, Appleton, Mueller, Drew, 
Clarke, Sheridan (Sth ward). Hillock, Doerner, 
Cullerton, Weber, Hildreth. rtheridan (8th ward), 
Yore, Mahony, Itevere, Deal, Simons, Hull, Lyke.

ierre, Tiedemann — 26, 

iVa?/s— Dixon, Gile, Wetherell, Wheeler, Kerr, 
Campbell, Landon, Eyan, Ernst, Severin— 10. 

The following is the ordinance as passed: 
A supplement to an ordinance entitled "An ord- 
inance authorizing the North (^''hicago Kail- 
way Company to operate its cars by other than 
animal power." 

Whereas, The City Council of the. City of 
(Chicago passed an ordinance on the seventh day 
of June, 1886, entitled "an ordinance authorizing 
the North Chicago City Railway Company to op- 
erate its cars by other than animal power;" and. 

Whereas, said company has requested the 
City Council to pass a supplement thereto, agree- 
ing to accept the same and make it a part of the 
ordinance already passed; now, therefore. 
Be it ordained by the City Council of the City 

of Chicago: 

That the provisions of said ordinance shall not 
apply to Division street, between Clark and 
State streets, and State street, between Division 
and Kinzie streets, unless the owners of more 
than one-half of the frontage on said streets, 
between Clark street and Kinzie street, shall 
present a petition to said company asking that 
the cars of the street railway company be oper- 
ated on the same in the manner therein pro- 
vided. 



Aid. Hull moved that the ordinance referred 
to in the message, providing for the removal 
of snow, be passed. 

Aid. Dixon moved to amend the ordinance by 
striking out the words, "eighteen hours," wher- 
ever the same appears, and insert in lieu thereof 
the words, "twelve hours." 

Aid. Cullerton moved that it be referred to 
the Joint Committee on Streets and Alleys of the 
three divisions. 

Aid. Manierre moved to suspend the rules for 
the purpose of putting the ordinance on its pass- 
age. 

The motion was lost by yeas and nays as fol- 
lows, two-thirds failing to agree: 

Feas— Dixon, Mueller, Drew, Gile, Wetherell, 
Clarke. Doerner. Weber, Sheridan (8th ward). 
Deal, Simons, Kerr. Hull, Lyke, Landon. Eis- 
feldt. Ernst, Severin, Linn, Manierre. Tiede-

Cullerton. Hildreth, Yore, Mahony, Wheeler, 
Revere, C'ampbell, Schack. Ryan, Colvin, Car- 
ney— 14. 

The Chair then directed that the ordinance be 
published and refjarred to the Committee on 
Railroads. 

The following is the ordinance; 
Be it ordained by the City Council of the City 
of Chicago: 

Section 1. That hereafter it shall not be law- 
ful for any horse, steam or cable railroad com- 
pany which occupies any portion of any street of 
the city, to place or cause to be placed upon the 
roadway of any such street outside of its tracks, 
the snow which may fall upon that portion of 
said street, which is occupied by such company, 
except upon the following conditions: Where 
the snowfall is of such a character as to require 
its immediate removal from said tracks, to and 
upon the adjoining roadway, in order to prevent 
a stoppage of travel upon such horse, steam or 
cable railroad, then the company so placing such 
snow upon the roadway adjoining its tracks 
shall jit once proceed to cast off or otherwise re- 
move the same; and the same shall be removed 
from said roadway within eighteen hours after 
the cessation of such snowfall. Any horse, 
steam or cable railroad company which shall 
place or cau.se to be placed any snow upon the 
roadway of any street of the city, from that por- 
tion of such street occupied by such company, 
and shall allow the same to remain upon said 
roadway for the space of eighteen hours after 
the cessation of such snowfall, shall be liable to 
a penalty of not less than fifty nor more than 
two hundred dollars for each street upon which 
such offence is committed; and a further and 
continuing penalty of one hundred dollars for 
each six hours, after said eighteen hours, during 
which said snow is allowed to remain on said 
roadway. 

Sec. 2. This ordinance shall be in full force 
and take effect from and after its passage and 
publication. 

In compliance with an order of your honorable 
body, the Corporation Counsel submitted the 
draft of an ordinance providing that the Pitts- 
burgh, Fort Wayne & Chicago Railroad Com- 
pany grade, pave and put in good repair eighteen 
(18) feet of Stewart avenue. 

Aid. Sheridan (Sth ward) moved that the ord- 
inance submitted be passed. 

Aid. Clarke moved that it be referred to the 
Committee on Railroads. 

Aid. Sheridan TSth ward) moved to suspend the 
rules for the purpose of putting the ordinance 
on its passage.

Section 1. That the Pittsburg, Fort Wayne

ance passed August 22, 1864. and between the 
points in said ordinance mentioned. 

Sec. 2. This ordinance shall be in force and 
take effect from and after its passage. 



The Corporation Counsel submitted, in re- 
sponse to an order of your honorable body, an 
opinion as to how much of the street occupied 
by the tracks of what was formerly known as 
the Chicago, MiJlington & Western Railroad 
Company can be improved at the expense of the 
railroad company now claiming said franchise. 

Aid. Culierton moved that the same be pub- 
lished and referred to the Committee on Rail- 
roads. 

The motion prevailed. 

The following is the opinion; 

OPINION. 

Office of the Counsel to the Cokporation. ) 

Chicago. June 12th, 1886. f 
To the Honorable the City Council of the City of 

Chicago. 
Gentlemen: 

In response to your request to report to the City 
Council how much of the street now occupied by 
the tracks of what was formerly known as the 
Chicago, Millington and Western Railroad Com- 
pany can be improved at the expense of the rail- 
road company now claiming said franchise, I 
submit th^ following opinion: 

The ordinance concerning said railway com- 
pany was passed by the City Council August 25th, 
1876. Section three (3) of said act provides, 
among other things, that the streets, alleys and 
crossings which may be occupied by said railway 
company with its tracks, switches and turnouts, 
shall, whenever required by the City Council, be 
graded, paved and repaired by said company, un- 
der the direction of the Board of Public Works, 
and shall be repaved and repaired wlienever or- 
dered by the Board of Public Works or City 
Council, and shall be kept and maintained in 
good order and repair. 

Said company did occupy with its tracks said 
Twenty-sixth street from the western city limits 
east to a connection with the tracks of the Chica- 
go and Southern Railway on said Twenty-sixth 
street. 

The Superintendent of Streets has notified me, 
that the Chicago, Burlington and (^u'lncy Rail- 
road (Company now claims andexei'cises the right 
by virtue of aforesaid ordinance to occupy said 



portion of Twenty-sixth street with its tracks, 
switches and turnouts, as the successor of afore- 
said railway company. The question how much 
of said street can be improved at the expense of 
the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy Railroad 
Company may refer to the toidth of the street, or 
its length, or both. I shall assume that you ex- 
pect me to cover both phases of the question in 
this communication. 

pit seems to me that the railroad company is 
clearly obliged to grade, pave and repair the 
whole width of said Twenty-sixth street, from 
curb to curb, and not merely a portion thereof. 

If the intention of the Council had been to re- 
strict the obligation to pave streets and keep the 
same in repair to a portion only of the width of 
said street, it could and undoubtedly would have 
said so in apt words. 

Frequently Councils have deemed it proper to 
limit the obligation of railroad companies to im- 
prove streets, by confining such duty merely to 
the road-bed actually taken up by their tracks; 
or to a certain number of designated feet of the 
width of the streets so occupied, or to certain 
fixed distances alongside of their tracks. How- 
ever, in all such cases the limitations have been 
clearly and unequivocally expressed, and under 
no circumstances will such limitations be pre- 
sumed. 

I am of opinion that whenever the word 
"street" is used in enactments and not qualified, 
it means the whole width of the street. If not, 
then what portion was meant: was it a tenth, or a 
hundredth or a thousandth part thereof? Who 
shall determine? — what tribunal shall decide this 
vexed question? None is designated in the ordi- 
nance. If left to the option of the railway com- 
pany, the so-called improvement might possibly 
be likened unto a mathematical line, which, 
though it have length, has neither breadth nor 
thickness. 

Any other construction of this ordinance than 
the one given involves an absurdity. I, there- 
fore, maintain that aforesaid company can and 
should be made to pave and keep in repair the 
entire width of Twenty-sixth street. 

We come, then, to the remaining question: 
Does the ordinance require of the railway com- 
pany the improvement of the whole length of 
Twenty-sixth street, or only so much thereof as it 
actually occupies by its tracks? 

You will notice that the ordinance reads, that 
the street occupied by its tracks shall be paved 
by said railway company. The expression used 
is not to pave so much of the street as is occu- 
pied; nor such part of the street in which its 
tracks shall be laid, or similar phrases, clearly 
limiting the obligation. 

Although several interpretations of the above 
language employed in this ordinance are possi- 
ble, we are nevertheless, in duty bound, in doubt- 
ful cases, to adopt the more reasonable construc- 
tion. The effect that would result from one or 
the other construction should guide us. Would 
it not be manifestly unreasonable to demand of a 
railway company to pave and keep in repair a 
street many miles m length for the privilege of 
occupying with its tracks only a small portion 
thereof? 

Among all the grants of franchises by the Coun- 
cil of tliis City none can be found containing such 
onerous provisions as the improvement of such 
parts of the street not used by them. Obligations 
and benefits should be proportionate. We must 
assume that the Council intended only what is 
just and equitable. When required by a sense of 
justice, the meaning of tlie words sliould be re- 
stricted. 

In construing this part of tlie act lot us consid- 
er the whole-act, its aim and oliject. 

By applying proper and well known tests in tlie 
le^al construction of the text, the conclusion is a 
fair and just one to limit tlie liability of this rail- 
road company. 

In my opini(m the (Chicago, Burlington and 
Quincy Railroad ('ompany is obliged, under tiie

ordinance, as the successor to the Chicago, Mil- 
lington and Western Railroad Company, to grade, 
pave and repair, and repave when required, the 
entire width of Twenty-sixth street, the whole 
length of the route of said Chicago, Millington 
and Western Railway Company from one termi- 
nus to the other of the latter railroad. 

I enclose herewith the draft of an order, the 
adoption of which will enable the Depart ment of 
Public Works to enforce the fulfillment of those 
provisions of the ordinance that are favorable to 
public interests. I beg furthermore to call your 
attention to the fifth section of said ordinance, 
which provides that the railway company shall 
maintain permanent crossing wherever its tracks 
cross streets and alleys, and shall build one via- 
duct each year, when so ordered by the City 
Council. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Fbanois a. Hoffman, Jr., 
Corporation Counsel. 
The following is the order: 

Ordered, That the Commissioner of Public 
Works is hereby directed to order the Chicago, 
Burlington &Quincy Railroad Company to grade 
aad pave West Twenty-sisth street, as required 



to be done under the ordinance by virtue of 
which said street is occupied by said company. 



In response to an order passed by your honor- 
able body, the Commissioner of Public Works 
submitted a report of the improved streets 
cleaned during the week ending June 12, 188(5. 

Aid. Sheridan (5th ward) moved that the report 
be published. 

The motion prevailed. 
The following is the report:

To the Mayor and Aldermen of the City of Chi-

licensing foreign fire insurance companies, hav- 
ing had the same under advisement, beg leave to 
report and recommend the passage of the ordin- 
ance and resolution.

OPINION. 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago : 

Gentlemen:— I beg to call your attention to 
the subject of licensing foreign fire insurance 
companies, which I think requires action on your 
part. 

Under its former charter the city received from 
all foreign insurance companies, fire, marine and 
life, two per cent, upon the gross receipts from all 
premiums. The legislature, in 1869, passed a law 
which the courts held repealed this provision of 
the city charter. In 1872 the legislature again 
enacted a statute compelling all fire insurance 
companies to pay to the city two per cent, upon 



their net receipts. Under the last statute the 
agents of foreign fire insurance companies have 
been paying to the city several thousand dollars 
per annum, representing two per cent, upon their 
net receipts. A short time ago, a test case was 
made up by the City Attorney and the attorneys 
for these companies to decide the question 
whether the law of 1872 was not itself repealed by 
a statute passed in 1879. This case was decided 
against the city by the Superior Court and the de- 
cision affirmed by the Appellate Court of the 
State. An appeal has been taken to the Supreme 
Court of the State, but as the matter now stands, 
the city is deprived of the revenue it has obtained 
in the past from these corporations and the Po- 
lice and Firemen's Relief Fund is crippled by the 
loss of its share of these licenses. 

It seems to me that nothing should be left un- 
done to secure to the city this revenue, and the 
question as to the best mode of procedure is an 
embarrassing one. Upon full consideration, I 
beg to recommend as follows: That the appeal in 
the test case referred to be fully prosecuted in 
order to reverse, if possible, the decisions of the 
Superior and Appellate Courts and to maintain 
the law as it now stands. The case was ably ar- 
gued by the City Attorney, and the chances are, 
therefore, that the Supreme Court will not decide 
differently from the lower courts. In view of 
this, I would further recommend that the City 
Council pass the ordinance herewith submitted. 
It provides for the payment by foreign fire insur- 
ance companies of two per cent, upon their gross 
receipts in this city. By the terms of the section 
itself of the city charter which has been decided 
to be repealed, these companies were required to 
pay the two per cent, upon the net, instead of the 
gross receipts. The ordinance submitted con- 
tains some further provisions intended to enforce 
compliance with this two per cent, license re- 

f uirement by acting upon the brokers and agents, 
t is to be distinctly understood that in submitting 
this ordinance I do not guarantee that it will be 
sustained by the courts. The charter contains no 
express provision authorizing the Council to li- 
cense foreign insurance companies; but Section 
30 of the insurance law uses the following lan- 
guage: 

"Provided, That the provision of this section 
"shall not be construed to prohibit cities having 
"an organized fire department from levying a 
"tax, or license fee, not exceeding two per cent, 
"in accordance with the provisions of their re- 
"spective charters, on the gross receipts of such 
"agency, to be applied exclusively to the support 
"of the fire department of such city." 

It has been intimated, both by Judge Sydney 
Smith and by the Appellate Court, that this may 
give the city the implied power to impose the 
license fee, and, in my judgment, the effort should 
at least be made to require such payment. 

My third recommendation upon this subject is 
that the legislature, which meets next month, be 
petitioned for legislation to prevent the loss to 
the city and to the Police and Firemen's Relief 
Fund of the large revenue heretofore received 
from this source. A bill for an act to cover the 
subject is now being drafted. 

Upon this point, I submit certain resolutions 
calling upon the legislature to act in this matter 
at the coming session, and recommend that the 
same be passed by your Honorable Body. 

The matter has only recently come into my 
hands, and I now make the above recommenda- 
tions at the instance of the Comptroller, the 
Chief of Police and the Fire Marshal, who are de- 
sirous of retaining the revenue hitherto received 
from fire insurance companies not incorporated 
in this State. 

Yours respectfully, 

F. S. Winston, Jr., 
Corporation Counsel.
